it had the dawn of a new era but benighted circumstances a kind of dark is brutal death constant blasting shadow over the nation of. global pressure grows to find out whether gadhafi was killed in crossfire or executed joining me and he's now in tripoli for more details. beyond the call for movement in the u.s. build support across the board as me do it sees hears from the rest despite peaceful demonstrations. new finance cheese in these years again in brussels but our latest round of crisis to exceed euro skeptics in the u.k. are pushing for a nationwide referendum on leaving the union. and the new twist in the case of the russian agent and xander nickname goes down as we did make ties with britain's intelligence services.
news to russia and iran the world this is a she with me thanks for joining us here because interim government says it's looking to hold elections within the next eighteen months as the war torn country prepares to celebrate the day of liberation following the death of colonel gadhafi but the unclear circumstances of the former leader's death have sparked international calls for an investigation with every new piece of video casting a deep shadow on their part of that it died in crossfire is voters currently being kept in a trail of room in a shopping center and is brought up one of the hot spots of the revolution to oust him hundreds of the business have been queuing for photo opportunities with their bloodied body the failure to carry out burial within twenty four hours is a blatant contravention of islamic law now the interim government says it may be called stupid death his extended family aunties and he's of the things. the n.p.c. is saying that you thought he was killed by a bullet wound also conflicting reports as. so where exactly those shots were in
his stomach in the right side of his head in the left side of his head it's looking very shady and then this brutal video that went viral the mainstream media showing up more than twenty four hours constantly of gadhafi whether or not he was dead or alive very unclear at first in the first couple of shots of the it appears that he's alive he actually goes and touches head right somewhat away and then there's a fight i know it seems that he was we were dead in the later which is the same thing with one of his sons that was captured in syria the first pictures of him standing against a wall smoking a cigarette very clearly alive then the video cards and all of a sudden he's dead so really pressure coming from around the world both from the west and other countries that were very very critical about nato mission here in libya not that something needs to be done about an investigation the u.n. is running almost an investigation and russia's foreign minister was very clear that russia and many of many countries and officials around the world feel like the weight of the death he was killed in these pictures that we saw were perhaps not
the best possible way to go to look at the. it's the footage shown on t.v. proves that he was captured alive and wounded and also that he was killed later there were reports that a convoy carrying a condo was attacked by nato planes and also that the rebels captured members of that convoy it has been repeated numerous times that nato planes are only have a u.n. mandate to ensure a no fly zone over libya and the convoy wasn't posing any threat to civilians on the ground and could be a legitimate target so nato actions pose a number of questions as well. as speaking of that no fly zone which of course how this mission began back in march the u.n. looking into when it will officially and how it was so christian for the most intent as soon as possible the date when you know it is october thirty first but it has to be said officially nato mission is very much alive here in libya gadhafi is body is in a walk in refrigerator now in misrata. and already way beyond the twenty four hour
mark how he had been buried by muslim tradition if there's a liberation ceremony will take place in benghazi we're hearing it will take place there about of course was the original rebel stronghold where their hope fight for freedom began it will take place there instead of the capital because the security situation here is still very tense just a couple of days ago there was a shootout between n.g.c. troops and you've got fuel oil with the low mostly celebrations have been taking place obviously officials the interim officials are worried that there could be some kind of violence here in the capital very few people obviously were on the streets last night asking what's next with a b o they can answer that question my god so world analysts are certainly looking into what will happen there be chaos here one of the main fears is that libya could break out into some kind of tribal war that there's going to be this hour show in the world community has begun to think what will we see happen here in the coming months and years. as some in the international community try to get to the bottom
of this death. could very well provide the answer everyone is looking for. it's all of them nothing we grabbed him in the face some fighters wanted to take him away and that's why i shot on twice in the head and in the changed basically been fighter said he didn't like the idea of taking the cannon alive also flaunted what he calls is the blood of shad and a gold ring on which the name of cadet his second wife sat here and the date of their marriage had been a great doctor benjamin barber a senior fellow at the tennessee u.s. bank doesn't expect anyone to be held accountable for the killing. gadhafi was clearly executed in fact he was executed twice once by the nato air strike intercepted his carer and tried to kill him and then once he was caught by the ground forces again executed officially more official it's questions from they expect of all accountable one individual soldier who in the frenzy of battle did it
the militia from misrata which that in the jewel was a part of the nato forces that you know searched bombed the caravan and killed most of the people apparently forty or fifty two children just didn't get. my own guess is there will be a lot of talk here and in the end nothing will happen because everybody inside libya and also outside libya will be basically glad that he's dead and not alive. this is on c.n.n. still ahead for you this hour double trouble britain faces the push prussians out of the marriages that poisoned him a k.g.b. agent alexander to name also had ties with the country's intelligence services. to quit or not to quit also vote on british membership of the euro skeptics call for a nationwide referendum on the lead. the occupy wall street movement grows stronger despite a series of arrests and scuffles with police which continue new york activists
accuse the police of heavy handed tactics against people peacefully expressing their opinion lisa come from a has already here. well the occupy wall street protests continue to spread across the united states here in new york city and not only have occupy wall street protesters camped themselves in zuccotti park but here in union square they're now marching against police brutality that is the new focus of the protests in the face of increasing arrests increasingly tally they say by not only the new york city police department but also police departments across the world now over the weekend approximately nineteen protesters were arrested in downtown orlando in florida one of them was an armed u.s. army soldier and a man in a wheelchair their crime not moving when the police officers told them to move even though they say they were simply trying to stand up for their first amendment freedom of speech rights to call alex attention to the corruption both in wall
street and in washington now one of the biggest issues of the occupy wall street protests today is the heavy hand of police tactics by the officers when protesters are simply they say making their voices heard trying to get politicians to listen to them in a country that they say no longer represents their democratic needs or democratic interest do seem to be growing we've seen increasing numbers of protesters out in the streets from seattle to chicago to los angeles some of the people i've spoken to today in fact say they're they're starting a small scale protest in upstate new york it seems like this movement is popping up all across the country prosper going to forty is know how to handle it one of the interesting facts that many of the protesters here have cited both to me and other reporters working for our teeth is the fact that the united states while it only represents about five percent of the total world population has the highest one of the highest incarceration rates across the globe in fact a quarter of all the world's inmates are housed in prisons here in the united
states this is one of the biggest issues that are concerning protesters here many of whom like to point out the fact that few people on wall street have been arrested or punishment. corporate crimes while innocent civilians seem to be jailed for simply speaking simply stepping up the curb for example or marching in demonstrations that they say are constitutionally protected here in the legal system of the united states that is this confident reporting from new york our correspondents in america cross them going. there for you and you can add to our to his twitter stream to get all the latest updates and one of the tweets that police have surrounded union square in new york it says that there are more officers that protests. israelis inspired by american activities have spent weeks protesting and calling for social justice on the streets of tel aviv but now that the rise have ended people are left wondering when the reforms promised to them by the government will emerge paula see
a report. anger outreach and protest on the streets of new york a throwback to the same scenes different streets around ten thousand kilometers away. exaggerated in the same way as the. far in taking for granted the citizens occupy wall street it wasn't that long ago israelis were calling to occupy boulevard you know in a bid to join the coaches from the beginning she was inspired by what happened in cairo and caught who tend to your corner. here. people were feeding you were praying every evening and people are coming in. as you know watches even some fuld in far away new york she misses the six weeks she lived here and wishes she could be part of the wall street rallies i am very proud of the word everything is great.
and really holds the pugilists in new york has strong parallels with those in israel in how they came about and why the similarity between the port. it is just uncanny. the way they started on facebook the way they chose a location very close to where the the center of power is where the center of greed is for in this case the last three but many are wondering what exactly that struggle in israel achieved recommendations made by government committee still need to be implemented and that could take a long enough look like any other street in tel aviv but the political ploy of the so shall take the revolutionizing its role of attaining the team mates with bikers and the social demands of the waiting to be made like many american israeli army coffman is watching the us rallies closely and says they are an inspiration to many in israel is proud people are taking a stand against corruption and greed the protest the struggle and the anger is in
the people still and the struggle is still going to go on a view that more and more people around the globe seem to share policy r.t. tel aviv. and heavy this hour the person behind the protests. that are going to grab it before the whole of both parties i think we want a new party. he's a new york resident noriko and it's find out what in life thousands of people taking part in the occupy wall street movement. finance ministers from all twenty seven european union states are meeting in brussels for more talks on the spiraling economic crisis which threatens to turn global europe remains a solution for greece's debt disaster and bailouts with ministers saying banks should raise more than one hundred billion euros in new capital and write off some of the country's debt meanwhile british euro skeptics are pushing for the right to vote on a referendum for the country to leave big european union the people's pledge campaign believes the year undermined the u.k.
so written across the country are simply too high a lack of confidence by the group of demands for a nationwide referendum with the need to be discussed in westminster on monday conservative m.p. and supporter of the people's pledge douglas cause there's no economic benefit for the u.k. stay in the. it's costing us a great deal of money we're spending billions of pounds bailing out a currency we couldn't even choose to join but it's not just about economics it's about democracy for too long in this country we've left it to the political elite to decide these questions if you believe in democracy surely you should trust the people the people need to have a safe when we join the european union in the early one nine hundred seventy s. we thought we were joining a prosperous trading bloc europe at that time constituted about thirty six percent of global g.d.p. it turns out but by twenty twenty year paul account for about fifteen percent of global g.d.p. so you know far from joining a prosperous trading block we shackle ourselves to an economic corpse you know the
economic rationale for being in the european union i think is largely gone we want to be global players we want to have free trade relationships with the world not just with belgium and a few indebted states across the channel. there's an inquest into the death of former russian agent and xander in anger is granted by the u.k. is we to admit it was working for british intelligence the long stretching investigation was launched five years ago going to name good died of radiation poisoning in london he's either but it reports now and how recent discoveries could pose some uncomfortable questions for british intelligence. according to britain this is a man on the run and barry lugovoy hasn't left russia since two thousand and six because of an international arrest warrant and he's accused of murdering alexander litvinenko in london almost five years ago both former k.g.b. agents but lugovoy says he's got nothing to hide so. nobody really
suspected me at the pre inquest hearing even though british officials claim that i'm hiding from justice my lawyers annoy found out about it by sheer chance had we not found out about it i think the british press would have accused us once again of hiding from justice read this go and look at who is lawyers last week echoed calls from libyan because we don't know for a full inquest which is now finally being ordered but that's prompted yet another twist in a case already steeped in intrigue at all the one where no one there but my lawyers and i put ourselves food as an interested party so as we do i was forced to admit her husband was a paid agent in mice five in n.y.c. exactly but he worked for britain's intelligence and not just as a consultant she had no other choice she realized you might get involved in the inquest this will be revealed anyway because i know a few facts that will also british call to ask m i five an m i six a few questions. until now marina lee in yonkers always denied any
such link she says he was out of loyalty to her husband she refused to speak to us this is mission leaves m i five facing awkward questions and inquest they were the only party trying to limit and they did it for granted that they can just brush embarrass the country carpet and as i said if it had been consulting for them or working with them and he died in highly. the tourist second fact is on their patch then you have it crossed they will be are questioned about not offering protection to people and also not offering protection to the london publicly. the traveling into ten across the city living in kid died a slow and painful death caused by the lethal radioactive substance polonium two ten the unsolved case has been a thorn in the side of british russian relations refusing to extradite abundance chief suspect as some claim britain's pursuit has blurred the line between fact and
fiction there's a whole host of unofficial allegations. how we go from i guess which however horrible to an accusation that mr lugovoy was responsible is is ludicrous i mean it's all looks very fishy do an unbiased observer but the diet that we are being fed in britain through the media. short circuits a lot of that this is where it all began the millennium hotel in central london and it's what happened in here remains the biggest question mark living in commit lugovoy for breakfast here but they fell ill and that's when he's alleged to have been poisoned forensics did find that contaminated the port the link from back to move forward is still unproven it's hoped the coroner's inquest will determine once and for all what exactly went on behind these walls something c.c.t.v. missed the police say they have new evidence but won't disclose it until they conclude their own investigation as for lugovoy he says he'll answer any questions
they've got not in person of course but via video link i have been it r t london. russia has gone several u.s. officials from visiting the country in an escalating rant over the death of lord sergei magnitsky in a moscow prison almost two years ago this comes in response to a similar blacklist of russians by washington from entering the u.s. but nice kid died after a year on remand face intoxication charges it's clear explained it was held on to it alleged a huge fault against a number of russian officials to prison doctors face charges in moscow of negligence over his death but the u.s. is now refusing to grant raises to several russians it says are connected to the case moscow says the americans has blacklisted this stuff they are suspected of crimes against the russian citizens and big u.s. including kidnapping and torture russia has also warned it's made its terms the list which has not been publicly released unless washington drops its sanctions
president barack obama announced the end to american military deployment in iraq all troops to leave by the end of the year about that you nine thousand american troops will leave the country after more than eight here is an area that has cost u.s. taxpayers over eight hundred billion dollars almost four thousand five hundred years soldiers have died during their service in the iraq war logo and it won't be american political activist roy jerome things we do as the troll is a step forward for both countries but it doesn't mean america's influence in the region will land. this is very important milestone i think that our keys in general and have been waiting for this is the last eight years we want to hear this u.s. military occupation because of what it's all for and it is a major step and what i do action unfortunately it does not necessarily mean the end of the u.s. involvement and intervention in iraq because the u.s. is planning to keep an eye on sixteen thousand person and under state department
over all the occupied look at the leaders are not against keeping some u.s. three and. three in the new iraqi army on using newly purchased u.s. weapons but they are against granting because it had been a long list of crimes that were committed killing iraqi civilians with no accountability the u.s. intervention and occupation of iraq. there is not victory a claim there is nothing to look back at because a disaster should not have happened it's a disaster of this destruction and the us has been a part of iraq's problem and the door to the intervention i'm very happy that the u.s. is ending its intervention because i think this will help iraqis move forward. and a truck. more international headlines for you this hour in north of course a major piece he's tried to try to move barricades that are about as nick says but

a month old. october seventeenth was a one month anniversary and and i think it's it's early to to be issuing any statements or anything along those lines any any sort of major movements or revolution or anything like that throughout history has issued a statement within their first month it feels a little absurd to me to expect there to be one core message when this is a movement that's wanting to be inclusive that wants everyone to have a voice and everyone has their own life they have their own struggles is it i mean today's world is the soundbite now and has the potential of a d.d. world and they need a soundbite are there often that the current dominant paradigm and we're looking to give examples of what alternative paradigms could exist i tried to come in for a couple of hours so a lot of people are saying the message is it unified and that's an issue that the movement is having its problem communicating but i don't see it as an issue.
because do you feel like it's unified i think it was ultimately this is a big battle of ideas there's fifteen different worldviews pursuer foot and. people are talking and people are listening it's like the best university in the world but there's no unified message a lot of people don't seem to really understand why they're here they can articulate it so you know if this song makes them think about why they're here well they're in the alternative do you think that that's a problem with the movement is that there isn't a unified message not necessarily i think there's a prevailing theme to it everybody is disenfranchised with something you say education how kassam guy over there just said shipping jobs out of the country that through their stuff we part of it i mean it's not one thing i said it's not just one thing and there's a bunch of different reasons that i'm part of that too i mean i definitely agree with the fact that they're shipping jobs of the country we don't need any more so so how would you sum it up in one clear spent tens but the messages here. little
good i cannot reform i hold both parties i think we want to party thought they'd like everyone here feels like there is a unified message and that is there isn't a unified math that which they feel like is the very strike of the movements. and normally procedures that are shaking out the us i want a web site r.t. took home pay for the find out about these former u.s. marine who stood out so there's a policeman to become an intentional spokes person for the help of the whole truth movement that until it's mortality dot com for you. and also about ledger and launch a russian soyuz rocket that's all from a french space base in the tropics carrying the east first satellite navigation system a need to become a rival to america's aaa. that should bring you off to date of the
